Join the Bulldog Community
Welcome to University’s “Become a Student” page and we are so excited that you are considering joining our Bulldog Community! Whether you are looking to join the Elementary, Middle or High School, we want to invite you to take a look and see if our program is right for you. We take pride in our K-12 community and we would love to have you be a part of it.
University Schools Lottery
University Schools utilizes an online lottery method to select applicants for any available open seat. We automatically re-enroll students who are currently enrolled unless parents notify us of other arrangements. We will accept online open enrollment applications all year. However, to guarantee inclusion in the first lottery round held in January, we must receive online open enrollment applications by the second Friday in December. The lottery begins in January and continues through September as long as seats are available.
By policy, priority is given to University Schools staff/faculty members’ children and siblings of current University Schools students. We will notify those selected in the lottery by text message and/or email, after which you will have five days to accept the offer.
If you are coming from a District 6 school, please be sure to complete the Annual Student Data Update (ASDU) in Infinite Campus. We will request any required documentation for enrollment. If your student is coming from out-of-district, is not currently attending a D6 school or is an incoming Kindergartner, you will need to complete the New Student Registration and the following documents will need to be uploaded:
- Birth certificate
- Current Immunizations
If enrolling in high school, final acceptance is contingent upon the successful completion of the 8th grade.
University Schools may deny enrollment based on misrepresentation or non-disclosure of a material fact on the application, expulsion within the preceding 12 months, graduation from 12th grade from any school, failure to complete the New Student Registration and/or failure to return the required registration paperwork.
Applicants are responsible for visiting our online open enrollment system (Schoolmint) to update any changes to their application including sibling status, address, and phone numbers. Until chosen by lottery, all online open enrollment applications will remain active and kept in the lottery database until we offer enrollment to the applicants or the parent/guardian requests removal. We determine eligibility for interscholastic athletics in accordance with the rules of the Colorado High School Activities Association. Please note transportation is the responsibility of parents/guardians.
Special Information for High Schoolers
All incoming high school students need to submit transcripts and state assessments to University Middle School at 1717 65th Avenue.
University High School has an open campus policy which means that it is not mandatory that the student remain on campus (within grounds) during any free periods.
Special Information for Kindergartners
All prospective kindergarten students must be five years old on or before August 1 for consideration for admission.
